Attack of the Weeping Daleks!

It hasn’t been two months since Doctor Who’s 31st season (ahem) went out with a bang, and already props and costumes from the Platinum Age are in a museum!  Featured artifacts spur from Victory of the Daleks and The Time of Angels and include a Weeping Angel and and one of those gorgeous Ironside Daleks!  Don’t blink – you might be exterminated!  Or served tea.

Also available for your viewing pleasure are two Amy Pond costumes and a Winston Churchill suit.  I do hope they add the Doctor’s costume to the collection soon; I’ve been itching to try on that bow tie!  Of course, I’d have to bribe the security guards.  I hope they like poetry.

Said Emma Johnstone, tenant liason and marketing manager:

“The exhibition continues to attract thousands of fans each year and we’re sure the new props will see fans flocking to the centre in coming weeks.”

By the way, there are also other Doctor Who items, like the Ood and the Judoon, on display at Doctor Who Up Close in Cardiff, which has been open since December 2005!  Thus explaining that “thousands of fans each year” bit.

If you’re in Cardiff anytime this year between 10:00 AM and 6:30 PM, feel free to stop by!  For more information including ticket rates, click here.

In related exhibition news, another Ironside Dalek is now up for display via a poster on my bedroom wall.  Thanks, Doctor Who Magazine!
